Today I have made a Hero Arts "Make and Take" sponsored by Ellen Hutson LLC, who sells all kinds of great card-making goodies. The challenge is in celebration of the new 2013 Hero Arts stamps (some of which I have ordered - Yay!) and the requirement is to use a Hero Arts stamp. There are challenges for wood, cling and clear stamps - check it out, you have until January 1st to join in.
As you may remember, I recently bought the coolest vintage typewriter. It is all fixed up and working beautifully. I had forgotten how much finger force is required for typing! Anyway, Hero Arts has this great stamp called "Retro Typewriter" (F5498) that I used and colored up to match mine. Since a requirement is to photograph your card with the stamp, I decided to photograph it with my inspiration, too.
We are having lots of grey and rainy days here in California!
Can you see that I made my own patterned background paper by typing many different "thank you" phrases with my typewriter and photocopying it onto cardstock. I love it!
I also used Hero Arts LP114 for the sentiment, Nestibilities Lables Two and Back to Basics Tags, twine from my stash, Copic pens, and Lawn Fawn paper.
Hope you have a great day. I am off to the after-Christmas sales. I am NOT a shopper, but I get a kick out of this tradition of mine.
Thanks for looking in!
